Fertilizer Canada welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Government of Canada’s
consultation on renegotiation of the North American Free-Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with the
United States and Mexico.
NAFTA is of significant interest to our membership and their farm customers. Canada’s fertilizer
industry is an integrated, North American sector where farmers and agri-business on both sides
of the 49th parallel depend on imports and exports of fertilizer as well as the exchange of
technology and equipment, labour mobility, agronomic research findings, market information
and transportation corridors.
We support an expanded and modernized North American Free-Trade Agreement. The
Canadian government should adopt a “do no harm” approach to these negotiations, protecting
and enhancing free trade within North America.
